AT A time when small villages are faced with losing local services West Pinchbeck’s traditional produce show is an important institution.

Wendy Houghton, secretary of the small committee that ensures the 34-year-old show continues, was delighted that this year’s event received a lot of support, with entries from new people.

“We don’t want to lose another thing from the village,” explained Wendy.

“We have no pub, no post office, so when we have things that have been going on that long we don’t want to let them go.”

West Pinchbeck residents don’t want to let it go either, entering fruit, vegetables, flowers and cookery in a selection of classes, while children created pictures of a wedding scene, decorated a stone and biscuits and created miniature gardens.

Wendy said: “The hall looked really good.

“We had some of everything on display and we were so pleased with it.”
